At the urging of one of my besties, I watched a Netflix documentary called “HEAL.” HEAL takes us on a scientific and spiritual journey where we discover that our thoughts, beliefs, and emotions have a huge impact on our health and ability to heal. The latest science reveals that we are not victims of unchangeable genes, nor should we buy into a scary prognosis. The fact is we have more control over our health and life than we have been taught to believe. This film will empower you with a new understanding of the miraculous nature of the human body and the extraordinary healer within us all. HEAL not only taps into the brilliant mind’s of leading scientists and spiritual teachers, but follows three people on actual high stakes healing journeys.
I was highly and very personally impacted by this film on many levels – emotional, physical, and spiritual. I thought of friends struggling with cancer and chronic disease and the various issues I live with. I thought of my childhood and how parental relationships have affected my life. I thought about the power of prayer and my spiritual beliefs. I will be thinking about this for a while, and I am so glad I watched it.
Have any of you seen it? Would love to hear your thoughts.
Do you feel it?
Are you excited about all the possibilities the day may hold?
All the opportunites to make it special?
All the reasons to wake up?
Rise and shine
and cherish the moments!
Cheers & Hugs,
Every time I hear or read or say the words, “Rise and Shine,” I think of Grandma.
As a teenager, I loved to sleep in late – much like most teenagers – right? I vividly remember hiding under the covers to keep from seeing the sun streaming in the bedroom and hearing Grandma cheerfully holler from the bottom of the stairs on a weekend or summer morning, “Rise and Shine!” She was always so excited and ready to start a new day. I smile remembering that hope and excitement in her voice. She didn’t work. She didn’t even have a license to drive. Her days were mostly spent at home working hard – inside and out – making it a haven for anyone who visited or lived there. And yet she woke up so cheerfully each morning excited for what the day might hold.
I have to admit – I love the early mornings these days – especially on weekends and days I get to stay home. I love thinking about having the whole day ahead of me.
I baked Grandma’s Apricot Nut Bread yesterday. It is a recipe I have shared here before. And it truly really begins to feel like Christmas when I smell this bread come out of the oven. The memories just come flooding back of Christmases past at Grandma’s house and the joy that radiated from her in everything she did.
So rise and shine and cherish the possibilities this day will hold!
